|The annual meeting of the Keck
Observatory community, held this year at Berkeley, has as its purpose
to showcase recent and interesting results from the Keck I and Keck II
telescopes on Mauna Kea. It is also a forum for obtaining status reports
on current and new instrumentation, and for discussing initiatives and
opportunities that are still in the planning stages.
We hope to have resounding participation from the WMKO,
Caltech, NASA, UC and UH members of our scientific partnership.
The Keck Science meeting is a one-day meeting consisting of short talks
and posters. Anyone can give a talk: please volunteer a title and abstract
when you register:

Talks will be a total of 15 minutes with 5 minutes for questions.
We supply two viewgraph projectors and a computer projection.
Other AV needs should be specially arranged.
We will provide easels for 36" x 48" (W x H) posters.

We will schedule time for poster presenters who want to give a "one viewgraph,
one minute, no-questions" (strictly enforced) summary of their poster during
